The Mayo Clinic defines body dysmorphia as, ‘a mental health disorder in which you can’t stop thinking about one or more perceived defects or flaws in your appearance — a flaw that appears minor or can’t be seen by others. 

Those who have body dysmorphia may even, ‘feel so embarrassed, ashamed and anxious that you may avoid many social situations.’
